Holy crap....this is the first German beer that has wowed me--and I'm German! Insane smell. Insane. Cloves, banana, tangerine peel, and more. Just nuts how vibrant it smells. Tastes just like it smells, and so damn smooth. Only flaw, imho, is the non-existent head.

It looks a bit tame, with its hazel brown colour without much carbonation and a modest head. It smells very exciting however: a big cloud of clove, malt, ripe banana and orange fills the nostrils. It is so clovy and fruity, it actually smells a bit like a malty Glühwein. Taste follows suit, with lots of clove, banana, orange, liquorice, lemon zest, cinnamon and caramel. Lots of intense flavours in this brew. 0,5 liter might be a bit too much though: it gets a bit boring near the bottom. The mouth feel is full-bodied, soft and smooth and the alcoholic afterglow is very satisfying. I don't want to promote alcohol consumption too much here, but this beer did make me happy.

Pours clear, dark copper (SRM 30) with dark red garnet highlights. The think almond head is creamy, but dissipates quickly to a veil in an Aventinus weizen glass.

The aroma is sweet, with cloves and malt up front. Overripe pears and bananas are followed by Juicy Fruit gum.

The flavor is sweet and closely follows the nose. A short, mild finish adds prunes and dates.

With a full body and soft, smooth texture, light carbonation conceals the alcohol.

This is a great beer. One which I have overlooked for many years. It is dangerously easy to consume. It would pair with any occasion, but tastes like Autumn in a glass.

A - Gorgeous dark caramel colored, with the faintest amount of purplish high. Gigantic fluffy head that I just want to take a nap in.

S - Subtle roasted malts, sweet phenols, stonefruit

T - Sweet, candied sugars and fruit, maple, toffee, alcohol

M - Clean and bright, a heavy taste is lifted away effortlessly, perhaps a tad to thin for my liking, however.

O - Splendid and delicious. A classic and a style that is rare to find these days.

This is a classic weizenbock. Beer pours a nice dark amber, with a slight bit of head and nice lace. Smells of dried fruits and caramel. Taste is similar, with a nice carbonation and smooth finish. Outstanding.

Poured from a 1 pint .9 fl oz bottle into glass. For dating, label is stamped '17.177 310517'.
Amber brown colored body, slightly cloudy. Light tan head, two fingers settles slowly to thick creamy cap. Lacing slides back into beer.
Aroma of sugared caramel, dates, figs, banana, and cloves. Some wafting of alcohol.
Taste is sweet caramel malt, slight wheat twang, banana, cloves. Sweet caramelized sugar and dark fruits. Biscuit and a little dark chocolate.
Medium, creamy mouth feel. Medium tongue numbing.
Kind of like candied dates soaked in banana and spiced liqueur, but as a liquid.

This tasted more like a Belgian dark ale to me. It had dark fruit flavors.

Pours a murky brown coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smell is quite boozy, dominated by caramel malt and estery banana, with just a hint of dark fruits, clove and yeast. Taste is malt-forward, with strong estery fruit notes, spice and just a hint of wheaty yeast. Caramel, bready malt, with notes of banana and dark fruits: fig, plum, and cloves/pepper. Quite a bit of boozyness present as well, probably a bit too much, to be honest. Nice, full mouthfeel. Doesn't hold a candle to Celebrator, but still a pretty nice Doppelbock. Balance seems a little off, a bit too much sweetness and boozyness there for me.
